The Valentine’s Day related commercials that have been running on WGR are some of the most disturbing things I’ve ever heard.  My least favorite is the one where the listener is encouraged to buy his girlfriend a stuffed animal in order to avoid her terrible, scathing wrath.  The ad features two different versions of the “girlfriend”.  In the first version she’s irrationally angry about the (non-stuffed animal) present she received, and in the second version she is cooing with love as she cuddles her new stuffed animal.  HOLY COW is that commercial creepy.

Gentleman, if you suspect for even a SINGLE MOMENT that your girlfriend will fly into a rage if you don’t get her a stuffed animal for Valentine’s Day, you need to dump her, and then move and change your cell phone number- because that bitch is crazy.

    It’s not the stuffed animal that bugs me, it’s attaching all the anger/love to the stuffed animal that confuses me. I’m not a romantic person, so grand gestures and lavish gift giving do not appeal to me, but I am an idealist, so I’m baffled EVERY YEAR by the creepy commercialism surrounding Valentine’s Day.

    We watch CNBC at work and there have been a constant rotation of Vermont Teddy Bear and PajamaGram commercials. Nothing is more creepy than those commercials.

    You know, I just realised that the expression “stuffed animals” does not necessarily refer to taxidermy… When I first read this post, I was like : Uh, who the hell would want this for Valentine’s Day?

    Reading this blog clearly helps me improve my English skills! :)

    Thanks Kate for pointing out how commercialism has once again ruined the true meaning of a special occasion. My wife and I are going shopping for home renovations because it’s the first Saturday we have off together in a while. The point is that we’ll be together and that’s what counts to us.

    Grrrreg, AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! The commercial is creepy, but it’s not THAT creepy. No, we’re talking about plush toys. :D

    Toontom, WGR is my first experience with entertainment that seems to be marketed almost exclusively to men, and I’ve found the ads to be SO upsetting. Pretty much all the ads take a tone of “Don’t eff up Valentine’s Day, or she’ll never forgive you!” No wonder men hate Valentine’s Day. Sheesh. Have fun shopping on Saturday!

    Valentine’s Day is just another day on the calendar.

    you need to dump her, and then move and change your cell phone number- because that bitch is crazy.

    First of all, what makes you think we don’t like being attached to the crazy bitches? You never really know what’s going to happen and that excitement can be strangely addictive…

    That said, thank heaven that my girl is not one of those. We’re doing *nothing* for Valentine’s. No gifts, no dinner, no flowers. Screw the hassle of dealing with other people, we do stuff on our own terms and not when the calendar says we should.

    Look, I’m not saying a crazy bitch is always a bad thing, but I will go on record as saying any crazy bitch who measures love in stuffed animals is not worth the hassle. No exceptions.
